People who grew up in the 1990s will have fond memories of playing video games on the Atari console, but the founder of Atari -- Noel Bushnell -- is well and truly looking to the future with the launch of a brand new VR console that is designed to be able to process and track the movements and gestures of up to 10 players simultaneously, all within the context of a highly portable and largely wireless system.

What's great about this particular VR console is the fact that it works in conjunction with a special unit that wirelessly communicates with wearable suits and headsets, with each unit able to track the positions and communications of up to 10 players.

With this kind of setup, it's clear that the Modal VR system is best suited towards commercial applications, and could be of use in a variety of contexts ranging from gaming and entertainment facilities to touristic and artistic installations.
